General instructions:

  • Graduates and guests should arrive one hour before the ceremony.
  • Graduates will congregate by 9:00 a.m. on Mansion Lane near Building 1.
  • Graduates will stop at the registration table near Mansion Lane and University Drive. You will pick up a pre-printed name card with your information already on it, as you will have pre-registered and paid to attend Commencement.

  • Graduates will walk across the stage, receive a certificate, and shake hands with the Department Chair, the College Dean, and President Ortiz.
  • A professional photographer will capture the moment on film. Proofs will be mailed to you for your consideration.
